In turn-of-the-twentieth century Texas, the Berachah Home for the Redemption and Protection of Erring Girls was a place of refuge for young women cast out by society: prostitutes, addicts, or unwed mothers. For these women who had few options, the Berachah Home opened its doors to allow them to recover or rehabilitate themselves without forcibly separating them from their children, an incredibly progressive model for the time.
Home for Erring and Outcast Girls reimagines what life was like in the home in an evocative tale that weaves together three women’s lives, spanning a century and exploring the power of love, motherhood, and friendship.
Julie Kibler is the bestselling author of Home for Erring and Outcast Girls and Calling Me Home, which was an IndieNext List pick, Target Club Pick, and Ladies’ Home Journal Book Club Pick, and published in fifteen languages.
